We are members of the Quality Standard Mark for beef and lamb.  The Quality Standard Mark is a scheme that provides you with high levels of assurance about the meat you buy.  It is the only scheme in the UK to cover eating quality.  All beef and lamb carrying the Mark is chosen according to a strict selection process to ensure it is succulent and tender.  Quality Standard beef and lamb is produced to higher standards than required by law with a suppy chain which is fully assured and independently inspected at every stage from farm to meat counter.


We are also members of the 'I love to buy local' scheme supported by The Best of Sudbury.  For more information on the scheme, please visit www.thebestof.co.uk/local/sudbury

Alan Leeder, Owner

My first experience of working in a butchery was during my work experience at the age of 15 when I worked at what was then G Rice Butchers in Boxford.  That was when I knew I not only wanted to be a butcher, but wanted to run my own butchery.  

After completing my GCSEs I went to MEAT College in Ipswich and started an apprenticeship at the Hadleigh Co-op Butchery department.  Once I had completed my apprenticeship I stayed at the Co-op until 2000 when I joined Gerald and it was there that I learnt the art of making sausages!  I enjoyed working in the shop so much that when Gerald retired in 2007 I bought the business from him and A Leeder Butchers was born (a week before my eldest son!).  

I have lived in the Boxford area all of my life and enjoy being part of the village life.

Alex Taylor, Butcher

I first started working in a butchery in December 2014 as a Sales Assistant at Morrisons.  After learning from my manager, I progressed to a butcher and eventually became the manager at the start of February 2016.

I took an interest in butchery and wanted to learn the various preparations of beef, lamb and pork from the whole body.  I joined Alan in October 2016 and I am enjoying working in the shop.
